Abstract
A high-performance laser tracker that is used for the calibration of a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is introduced. A specially designed hemispherical-shape articulating mirror is used in the tracking mechanism, which enables reduction of the measurement uncertainties so that they are not more than 0.3 ?m. The uncertainty analysis of the laser tracker is also described.
